Are Green Collar Jobs still doing well and seeing an increase even in this economy? Of course.
These are new jobs for the most part. The industry is new. Service related jobs are also new. Many manufacturing jobs are new - the products are all new.
As an example, let's take a look at solar panels. Solar panels for the generation of electricity are a new product. Engineering jobs, designing the panels and designing they way they fit together on a roof, is new - after all, electrical generation on home roof-tops has only been around for a few years. Panel production is also new. Since they were not made in bulk previously, jobs in production are going to increase as more people buy panels for their homes. As sales increase,iInstalling and maintaining panels will require more people capable of perfoming these services.
Green products will create more and more jobs. They will create their own economy in the short term. As markets grow and sales increase, they will become a major portion of our country's economy.
